To help schools work more closely together, NGN is considering organising regional Chairs Network meetings - probably in the North, South, East, West and Norwich areas and probably 2 in each area per year.  The idea of these meetings would be for Chairs of Governors from the area to get together and share ideas and best practice as well as simply meet each other and network.

To judge interest and whether such a meeting would be effective we organised a pilot in Norwich in February.  This went very well, with over 30 Norwich schools represented and, so long as we can get the logistics together, we're hoping to organise full meetings in the other four areas in the summer term.  Watch this space!
